Subject: Good film
Love 50s sci-fi but had never seen this one. Clever plot and good acting all-around.As previously noted the picture is pretty dark but watchable.

This film was pretty darned good1 The acting is far better than I expected. The script is really smart as well. This barely passes for science fiction, while it IS science, and it IS fiction, it's more about espionage. I don't want to give away the plot, but they could have done more with the little bit of sci-fi factor there was. The print is a bit dark, but still, quite enjoyable. Give it a look. It'll suck you in.
